This 60-minute session focuses on the innovation happening across the vehicle purchase experience. How can Dealerships respond to shifting times, improve the customer experience, and re-establish their value in the supply chain? Up to 5 startups will pitch their solutions across business models, predictive maintenance, fintech, charging, data, AI and more - to get us all thinking about the opportunities created by this disruption.

Our Spotlight Series, supported by Avanta Ventures, features a handful of startups followed by an interactive conversation - this month on the Vehicle Purchasing Exerience.

The Vehicle Purchase Experience is ripe for disruption. The traditonal dealership model is disliked by customers and under attack from new brands and direct-to-consumer. Enter entrepreneurs with solutions - from EV charging loyalty, better use of Big Data, AI across the customer experience, new leasing/purchasing biz models, connected car services, field repairs, predictive maintenance, upgrades, and more.
